The IMAX film "Beavers -- The Biggest Dam Movie You Ever Saw" is scheduled to be shown at 7 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Northwest Stream Center at 600 128th St. SW in McCollum Park. Admission is free but reservations are required.
The 1988 Stephen Low film has been shown before at the educational center and has always been a hit, said Tom Murdoch, director of the Adopt A Stream Foundation.
"It's very popular; it really fits in with what we're doing," he said.
The non-profit group works to restore stream habitats around Snohomish and north King counties and provides environmental education programs.
Three beaver dams are located just south of McCollum Park on North Creek, Murdoch said.
The short movie (31 minutes long) is set in forests and lakes in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The film follows the lives of a family of beavers. Baby beavers (kits) and their parents are seen growing, playing and working.
"Sammy the Salmon" -- actually, Murdoch in a salmon suit -- will introduce the film by explaining the benefits that beavers provide to salmon, trout and other wildlife. He'll take questions after the showing.
The movie will be shown on the center's big screen, which is 20 feet wide by 15 feet tall, Murdoch said. About 190 seats are available.
To make reservations, call 425-316-8592. For more information about Adopt A Stream or the Northwest Stream Center, visit www.streamkeeper.org.
